Award winning Complete Meats presents cheques to local worthy causes

Representatives from three local groups took a trip to the butcher’s last week - and brought home the bacon.

Axminster-based award-winning Complete Meats was making its annual donations to help worthy causes raise their profile.

This year’s recipients included Axminster Heritage, which is raising money to move the town’s museum into a new home at Thomas Whitty House, where the long history and heritage of the market town will be highlighted in a new setting. Also collecting a cheque for £50 was the Spectrum Youth Club, a new group for secondary school children based in Kilmington that has got off the ground largely due to the hard work of 14-year-old Jed Holmes.

The final organisation to receive funding was Axminster Guildhall .
